Also was wandering about the Man Utd Premier Cup - I think you said that you had watched some of it and was just wandering whereabouts you got to watch it cos I would kinda like to see some of it.
Anyways cheers for any feedback you can give.
I lived in Scotland like a few years back, and then I moved to singapore. Been to many different countries really. Yeah I used to play for this junior Dundee United team. Sigh you know, if I had stayed in Scotland, I'd be like a million times better than I am now, and would have probably been spotted by Celtic or Rangers since I'm Chinese and I stand out =p
Well life sucks and now I need another route.
Manutd Premier cup? Oh the final was just held yesterday. It was held before the Manchester United's game with Hong Kong national team. Read http://www.manutd.com
for how the Manutd game went and http://www.manchesterunitedpremiercup.com
for more about the Premier Cup.
Basically the premier cup is held in a different place every year. Manutd gets automatic qualification. The hosts also get automatic qualification. Teams from around the globe strive to qualify for the cup. 2 years ago, Corinthians were the champions. Last year Manchester city- champions (How ironic!) and yesterday, Fluminese won. It's an U-15 tournament. Amazingly, it was held in Hong Kong for some reason, so that's why I managed to watch it. It was held in Manchester last year, and 2 years ago it was held in Brazil (i think).
Famous players that used to play for the Premier Cup- Casillas, Reyes, Mikael Forsell, Andy van der Meyde, Luke Moore, Jay Bothroyd, Iniesta, Xavi, Robinho, Carlos tevez, Javier Macherano, Jonathan Spector (and the list goes on and on).
More than 7,000 teams each year tries to gain one of the 42(I think..not sure) spots in the premier cup.
Before 2003, it was just called the Nike Premier Cup. However, Nike partnered up with manchester United in 2003 and is renamed Manchester United Nike Premier Cup.
